Dare to be different

Hi everyone,

Today I found some time to make the July tag for the 12 tags of 2012. Unfortunately I don't have compressed air at my disposal and I seriously don't know where I could get some. But luckily I saw that others used a straw instead to create a kind of simular effect. And a straw I do have!


I'm also joining in the fun at Frilly and Funkie and when I saw that the challenge was altered metal, I knew that I wanted to use some foil tape. This time I've used a ATC instead of a tag.


First I stuck the foil tape on a piece of cardstock and then embossed it. Then it was time for some fun with the alcohol ink and straw. I think for this kind of surface it is better to use a straw instead of the compressed air. Especially on such a small area. I colored the ribbon with the alcohol inks to make it very bright. It really blends well together. Hope it isn't a fire hazard or anything...



Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!

Hugs,
Sandra

  1. Sandra this is really neat. I did read where some else used a straw too. Pretty good idea with more control I would think. I love the colors you have used on the this. I think this would look great in an art journal.

  12. The straw worked absolutely perfectly! Love the vibrant colors! Thank you for joining us at Frilly and Funkie! Most computer stores and maybe auto stores sell the compressed air. I purchased mine at WalMart! Happy Weekend!

  14. wat een leuke label en inderdaad ik had ook al bedacht om het met een rietje te gaan doen. KAn niet wachten om deze label te maken als ik terug ben van vakantie....ik mis niet veel als ik op vakantie ben maar wel mij scrappen. Gaan vandaag naar een stadje en daar is ook een hobby winkel en dan ga ik toch even snuiven en misschien wat kopen alleen voor het gevoel...Groetjes

  15. Oh wow! This is so colorful and vibrant. The alcohol ink looks fantastic against the embossed foil. What a great idea to use a straw to spread the ink. I didn't play in this challenge because I didn't have a chance to get out and look for the compressed air, totally never thought about using a straw! Super entry into the altered metal challenge. So great to have you joining in the fun with us this time around at Frilly and Funkie!

    Hugs,
    Linda

  16. This tag is so cool Sandra! Great idea of doing the technique on foil tape, and to emboss it with the riveted metal folder. Love the vibrant colours!
